The pastor and gospel recording artist who gave the eulogy at Whitney Houston's funeral in February was beaten and carjacked in Detroit on Wednesday.
The Rev. Marvin Winans suffered cuts and bruises and had his wallet, a $15,000 Rolex watch and his 2012 Infiniti SUV stolen, according to the Detroit Free Press.
The three or four men who attacked Winans at a gas station in a northwest part of the city likely did not know who he was, police said.
